V. J. Chambers likes bad boys, but she likes them to be actual bad boys, not misunderstood weaklings who cover up their emotional scars with a thin veneer of pretend bad-boy-ness.She likes to tackle tough philosophical questions. She likes to push fiction to the edge, to go just a little farther.She writes stories about difficult people living difficult lives in difficult situations. Usually, there's magic. Or monsters. Or space. Or gun fights. A lot of times, there's also L-O-V-E. (Or at least uncomfortable conversations about sex.)She's the author of the Jason and Azazel series and many other stories for teens and adults. She lives in Shepherdstown, WV with her boyfriend Aaron and their cat.
